Franchise Gator Names Camille Albane Franchise to Top 100 Franchise List

Franchise Research Site Calls Camille Albane Salon Franchise a Best Bet

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Feb 27, 2015) - Franchise Gator, a leading online destination for those seeking to invest in a franchise opportunity, has named the Camille Albane franchise to its 2015 Top 100 list.

The ranking is designed to provide a practical tool for the single-unit or first-time franchisee, who usually can't afford the multi-million dollar investment typical of many franchise brands. Criteria used to create the list include information about each franchisor's financial health, profitability, year-over-year growth, market strength and long-term sustainability.

Franchise Gator ranked Camille Albane 68th overall, a notable achievement considering the European-based franchisor opened its first franchise in the United States in 2014.

Camille Albane is the largest European hair salon franchise and is the first to bring authentic French beauty services to the United States. With nearly 300 salons in more than 11 countries, we are known for our upscale customer experience and Balayage color techniques and for creating fashion-forward trends rather than merely following the latest fads. The Camille Albane franchise fills a wide-open niche between value salon brands and high-priced luxury brands.

"The unique French approach to beauty is a part of French culture and sets them apart from women the world over," said Allyson King, chief executive officer of Dessange Group North America, the parent company of Camille Albane. "Women all over the world long to emulate that kind of effortless, authentic, individual beauty, and Camille Albane can give it to them."

One of the most unique elements of the Camille Albane franchise is its commitment to producing biannual collections. Internationally, Camille Albane works with the creative artisans behind Paris Fashion Week to release cohesive collections in the spring and fall. The collections consist of nine unique looks with three models, and they incorporate the hairstyles, color and make-up trends that will be on point for that season.

"Other franchises are just cutting salons," says John Prichard, who is building five Camille Albane salons in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. "They have a few extra services, but those services are pretty minor in terms of what they provide. The guest service and training and development model that we have allows people to come in and step into a full-service hair salon environment and be well supported and stronger than what I've seen from competitors."
